Doors Open Richmond Hill is an event that supports cultural sites in the community to open their doors to everyone. This free event is part of Doors Open Ontario, launched in 2002 by the Ontario Heritage Trust.
Doors Open 2018 - Saturday, May 12 from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
An earlier version of this article incorrectly described a behavior of crows exposed to crow corpses. Live crows only touch, attack and attempt intercourse with crow corpses, they do not scavenge them. (Actual NYT correction)

Looks like Doors Open is dying. Main website down for weeks already and no one bothered to fix. Participating sites have dwindled to mostly churches and hobby clubs.

Some community committees try themes in order to have some different buildings on the tour each year. In Ancaster last week, someone came into the library expecting to find the colour Doors Open Ontario guide but I advised her to contact a tourism office for one or read the online guide. I did not even see a program guide for the Doors Open Hamilton event last week-could have been due to a lack of sponsorship to cover the printing and distribution costs. However, the local event website did get updated about a week prior to May 5.

As to attendance issues-yes some events seem to have little foot traffic but others continue to have sustained visitor numbers. Not all locals are gaga to attend each year's event. I have volunteered in the past and sometimes random discovery by visitors is the main reason for Saturday visits to a site during Doors Open where there may be limited or no bus service.
